Just Add Ink #437..."I"




Happy Friday friends!

Tina has challenged us all to add an "I" element to our projects this week...There are loads of options for this one, check out the design teams projects for some fun and creative ways to add "I".
I decided to have a break from Christmas projects and went with a sweet birthday box using "Icing" on my cupcake as my "I" element.
I have combined the "Sweet Cupcake" bundle (retired) with some of the abundance of dsp from my stash (non SU).

To create the box, l followed this.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erkN77rVySQ 
great tutorial from mixedupcraft.com It was so easy to follow and fun to make, l will definitely be making more.
Thanks for an easy and fun tutorial Sam!

Just Add Ink #436...Sketch!

 Just Add Ink


Well! It's almost December and only a few weeks until the big guy arrives and it's also card giving time.
So with that in mind and this weeks Just Add Ink sketch challenge from Narelle, l have created a Christmas card using "Stylish Christmas & Swirly Frames"...I have to say, nothing really says Christmas like traditional images and colours...Tranquil Tide & Merry Merlot being my choices for this one.

I have deviated from the original sketch orientation and incorporated the elements horizontally...Just for something different!




The design team have come up with some great ways to use the sketch, so don't forget to head over to the challenge blog and take a peek!

Just Add Ink #435...Inspiration!

 Just Add Ink




Good Morning Friends!

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge was set by Kim and she has given us some frosty inspiration to create with.
I really enjoy casing the odd project from the Catalogues and fell in love with the cute Gable box and decided l had to make one....Well once l'd done that, l realised the theme would work well for a card and tag for this weeks challenge.
For my projects l have used the Buffalo Check B/G stamp and the super cute Sprig Punch and added a retired Christmas tree image from the "Christmas Lodge" stamp set.








Head over to the challenge blog if you would like to see all of the design teams projects for this weeks challenge....loads of fabulous ideas.

Just Add Ink #434...Big Bold Sentiment!





Good Morning!

Well l think l definitely met the brief l set the team for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge...:0) I have created 3 very big bold sentiment cards inside and out using the "Beautiful Baubles & Merry Christmas to All bundles". 
I have drawn out the colours in the Joyous Noel DSP and Glimmer papers to create 3 fairly simple Christmas cards using the same basic design and of course lots of little Copper details.
The colours are Grey Granite-Merry Merlot-Tranquil Tide & Copper.






The rest of the design team have created some stunning projects using "Big-Bold sentiments" so make sure you head over to the challenge blog for heaps of inspiration.

Colour INKspiration #45

 Colour INKspiration




Goodness its been a busy few weeks! For the last three l have been sunning it up in beautiful Bali, having a lovely time with friends a getting some much needed R&R.
I flew home Thursday night, finally arriving in Melb at 11.45 Friday morning via Sydney due to our original direct flight being cancelled, just in time to head into the city for Stampin Ups! "OnStage" event at Rod Laver Arena....To say l'm a little delirious this week is an understatement. But both were fun and filled with wonderful friends and lots of laughter...Can life get any better!

Ok, so onto our new Colour INKspiration challenge. For this one we got to choose again from the 5 lovely 2017/19 InColours we wanted to add to our projects.
I've gone with Berry Burst-Lemon Lime Twist &Powder Pink and teamed them up with the "Bike Ride/Build a Bike" set & framelits.
This is such a fun set and can be super simple or very detailed depending on your preference.

You can see all of the design teams projects by continuing along the hop using the "Next" button below or you can click the link or banner above to be redirected to our Facebook page where you can request to join and if you want to play along you can add your projects there.



How awesome was the lovely Lou Kitzelmans project? Now you are off to see what Liz another lovely and talented crew member has in store for you.

Just Add Ink #433...Colour!

 Just Add Ink




Woohoo!....My fave season is only weeks away and l am just a little excited to be facing 3 months of warm sunny days....throw in Christmas and it's the best time of the year....Bring it on!
Over at Just Add Ink Jo has given us these bright bold colours to play with for this weeks challenge and with Christmas only weeks away, l am trying to combine all of my design team projects with Christmas cards if possible!
I have two cards, same, same but slightly different mediums for colouring. The first is the coloured pencils and baby oil technique and the second is Stampin Blends/Bic markers. Not entirely sure which l prefer,  but they are bright and fun and l'm sure l can send them to the appropriate people.

With Stampin Ups "Onstage" events next week, this challenge will run for 2 weeks to enable the design team to enjoy a stress free event and give admin a little break from moderating....Bring on the friends, laughter and awesome sneak peeks!






The rest of the team have used the colours in so many lovely variations, so make sure you pop over and take a look.
